KUWAIT: Zain, the leading digital service provider in Kuwait, announced its platinum sponsorship of the 36th annual conference of the National Union of Kuwaiti Students in the United States of America (NUKS USA), which is set to be held from November 28 to December 1, 2019 in San Diego, California under the patronage of His Highness the Prime Minister Sheikh Jaber Al-Mubarak Al-Hamad Al-Sabah.

Zain expressed its pride in being the platinum sponsor of the conference, continuing its role as a main supporter of the event for 16 years. The conference is considered the largest gathering of Kuwaiti students abroad, and Zain’s support comes in line with its corporate sustainability and social responsibility strategy towards the youth and education sectors, as well as its belief in connecting with the country’s youth abroad.

As it does every year; Zain will be contributing to the event by organizing a number of unique activities and programs. The company will be sponsoring a special sports seminar featuring many distinguished Kuwaiti athletes, as well as organizing the thrilling ‘Zain Football Tournament’ for students. Zain will also host a workshop that discusses accelerating tech startups, featuring many successful entrepreneurs.

Zain will participate in recognizing the top performing Kuwaiti graduates from the US, and will also take part in a special exhibition for sponsors, where the company will offer its exclusive promotions to students, present its available career opportunities, as well as showcase its leading experience in the telecom sector. In addition, Zain has prepared a number of surprises for students who will be visiting the event.

The conference will feature many unique activities, including a workshop entitled ‘Phonorizma’ for creating a charismatic brand through social media and smartphones, a self-development workshop for female students, and an economic seminar. The event will also host the stars of Kuwait Pulse 88.8 FM, and a concert by popular Kuwaiti band Miami. All these activities and more will feature many public/media figures, politicians, social activists, athletes, and more.

Zain’s presence in the event conveys its enthusiasm to interact with the future generations of Kuwaiti youth, especially those who pursue their education abroad, as the NUKS USA conference is considered the largest gathering of Kuwaitis outside of Kuwait, and welcomes students from all around the US. The distinctive event appeals to students on both an intellectual and social levels and it serves as an open forum for them to exchange opinions and views regarding important domestic issues with the presence of distinguished national figures from the Kuwaiti society.

Zain sees its annual participation in the conference as part of its responsibility as a leading national company to help provide bright and enthusiastic young Kuwaitis with a great social experience, as well as listen to their ideas and experiences while pursuing their education abroad.

The NUKS USA serves nearly 14,000 Kuwaiti students studying in the United States. The union aims, through its events and programs, to connect Kuwaiti students with each other on one level, and with their nation and the latest updates of the Kuwaiti community on another. NUKS USA was publicized in the US and was granted the recognition of the United States government. The achievement is considered a proud milestone for Kuwait’s youth, and is a direct result of the great relations between the State of Kuwait and United States. Such a recognition is a clear reflection of the strategic relations between the two nations.
